Label: DACAPO
Number Of Discs: 1 CD – Hybrid SACD – DSD

Marking composer Carl Nielsen's 150th anniversary, this recording concludes the acclaimed cycle of his symphonies known as The Nielsen Project.

Recorded live in Avery Fisher Hall in October 2014, under the baton of Alan Gilbert, The New York Philharmonic performs the Danish national composer's last two symphonies – Nos. 5 and 6.

According to Gilbert, “Both pieces represent the battle between good and evil” … “They are profound, dramatic works by an aging composer, who knew that his days were numbered.”

This is a beautifully rendered tribute to Carl Nielsen and his important contribution to the preservation of the Danish song, which he loved so dearly.

Please Note: The SACD layer of hybrid SACDs offers much higher fidelity than regular compact discs, containing up to four times the musical information. Hybrid SACDs are designed for CD-quality playback on conventional systems, including home and car stereos, portable CD players, computer CD- and DVD-ROM drives, and DVD players.
